Pennsylvania Race Recap 2016 The Race began on the Blue Mountain Ski Resort near Palmerton, PA. I knew that this race would present the most competitive field of obstacle racers since World Championships. I felt physically and mentally better than ever. The race started up the mountain with some intense climbing. I felt pretty good in 3rd place behind John Albon and...

Boise Sprint 2016

By on Apr 19, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

As a family we packed up the car and headed to Boise for what ended up being one of the most memorable races of the year. I had a good race but the best part was getting to do the race again with my daughter in the open heat. There’s nothing like doing hard things together (like a spartan race) to build relationships. My wife Leona @ocroilmom met us at the...

The spear throw was early in the race and a small group arrived at about...

I had a pretty fun race weekend with family and friends in Arizona. Great race between Hunter McIntyre and myself. We switched leads throughout the 4.5 mile course. I knew it was going to be an interesting finish when neither one of us could pull away with 400 meters to go. He threw the spear 1 second before I did. But I figured I could pass him on the rig. I did...

2015 OCRWC – Ohio

By on Oct 26, 2015 in Blog | 0 comments

Coming into the OCR World Championships I felt as unprepared as I did running my first Spartan race. I knew that there would be quite a few obstacles that I knew from Spartan races but I also knew there would be some that I had never seen before. The race started fast, faster than I wanted to go at the beginning of a 10 mile course with 53 obstacles. So Ryan and...
